Jalapeno Cilantro Lime Pork Tacos Recipe for your Super Bowl Party!
This Jalapeno Cilantro Lime Pork Tacos Recipe is easy and savory with pork marinated in a concoction of fragrant lime juice, chopped jalapeno, cilantro and spices. For less heat remove the jalapeno seeds. It is best to marinate pork for at least half a day or overnight. Grilled or pan fried results in a juicy and moist pork.
This sounds really good for Super Bowl party. It is something you can do ahead of time, so you don’t miss the fun.
Grill or pan fry pork in advance. Prepare pork rare, medium and well-done so everyone has their choice of meat. Slice pork and place in a heated serving tray. Wrap tortillas in a damp towel or aluminum foil and place in a slow cooker to keep it warm. Prepare all the garnish and serve it buffet style. Your guest can assemble their own pork tacos depending on their liking.
Don’t forget to prepare at least two taco sauces. One hot and one mild. I really enjoy pairing this pork tacos with mango salsa. It is so refreshing.
Taco night on game day is not complete without Spicy Margarita. Get this ready ahead of time. Combine and muddle all the ingredients and chill for a few hours before guest arrives. All you need to do is add tequila once your adult guest has arrived. This is also good even without tequila that your teenage kids can enjoy. Don’t forget, fill your cooler with ice and beer.
Making this Jalapeno Cilantro Lime Pork Tacos ahead of time will definitely give you time to relax, mingle and enjoy the game with family and friends.
This is so good and without a doubt you want it again anytime soon. Save yourself time, marinate extra servings and freeze it.
